is controlled by the opec cartel, the organization of petroleum exporting countries, which meets twice a year to establish quotas in order to keep prices at an acceptable level for the opec exporters. the national oil companies of opec and other countries around the world hold the vast majority of oil reserves, over 80%. they produce only 40% of the world's petroleum every day. there's a chart in the report that you have that shows us graphically. if there's ever an example of a market that is not free, it is that. nobody operates and acts in that manner in a purely free market. in fact, if opec were doing what it does abroad in this country, it would be a crime and a violation of our antitrust laws. so the prescription that the energy security leadership council came up with several years ago, which was very impactful in the energy security -- independence and security act of 2007, was it? 2008? was based on our report in 2007, which said that the united states should maximize its oil and gas production, that it should significantly reduce consumption and improve conservation, which led to t

that opec does, every time we see unrest in the middle east, we see a spike in oil, does that mean more we're rousing here in the u.s. we won't be impacting by that as much? >> yeah. i mean the more domestic supply we have, the less we depend on opec ps of the world, no question. the problem we have as the world though, 92 million barrels a day roughly what the production is. that is about a million barrels a day of excess capacity. so any little flare-up in the middle east will impact world oil prices. ashley: so do you think we'll be energy independent anytime soon? we're almost there. >> yeah. i think by "20/20" -- 2020 we have legitimate chance between all the natural gas we're bringing on and oil we're bringing on, on energy equivalent basis we'll be independent. we'll be importing oil and exporting gas as lng, very good, interesting stuff. john shiller, chairman of energy defend one. john, thank you so much. we appreciate it. >> thank you for having us. tracy: you make a great point, saudi arabia will not be very happy about our quest for independence. ashley: that is real threat to
year for opec. the cartel raked in, are you sitting down for this? more than a trillion dollars. i feel like dr. evil, a trillion dollars in oil revenue according to the u.s. energy information administration. that tops previous records set during the oil crease sis of 73, '74, 1981, even when you adjust for inflation. the average price of gasoline for the year also set an all-time record here in the states. according to aaa drivers paid $3.60 a gallon beating the previous record set last year. we beat that record unfortunately by nine cents. natural gas futures fell. a slate of cold temperatures recently pushed prices up with higher demand but forecasters say unusually warm temperatures are heading for the midwest and northeast as early as this weekend. >>> the senate gop caucus end ad high stakes meeting just a short time ago. will senate republicans embrace the latest framework for a fiscal cliff deal? also how failure to get a fiscal cliff deal could lead to a mortgage rate free fall.

intellectual, too. >> opec and the fed, hey, u.s. production up. let's go to sharon epperson at the nymex. >> oil has really been on the move since the open a few minutes ago. not so much opec, which still packed with the current quota around 30 million barrels per day, it is producing more than that. but we are hearing, of course, from opec itself that saudi arabia has reduced its production in november to the lowest level in a year. so that seems to be a way that they will adhere closer to the current quota. we're also looking at the latest report from the international energy agency which may have more of an impact where oil prices are going in this session. they're looking for slightly demand in 2013. and they're pointing to china for the reason. we're anticipating we'll get the report from the energy department at 10:30 a.m. on oil supplies. the expectation is for a slight decline in food supplies. but we did see a major build in the industry report, if that is confirmed we could see these gains short-lived. back to you. >> all right. thank you very much, sharon epperson. we've got a
.13 trillion of our debt. now, this is interesting. out of this debt number three on the list is opec. opec is an entity. that's the countries of ecuador and venezuela and india and bahrain and iran and iraq and kuwait and amman and qatar and saudi arabia and the u.a.e., algeria, ga been a, -- gabon, nigeria. they're now number three on the list and they own $267 billion of our debt. brazil comes in at number four, $250.5 billion. and then number five on the list, new to the list, the top five list, the caribbean banking centers. now own $240.4 billion of u.s. debt. by the way, caribbean banking centers are the bahamas, bermuda, cayman islands, netherlands and panama. this is who owns us. this is who owns our debt. and this is why on this side of the aisle, what we continue to say is the spending has to be dealt with. we have seen -- we've heard from everybody. we are hearing from economists all around the globe. and they repeatedly say what we are saying, what we've been saying for years as week of come to this floor. is that we have a spending problem. the spending has to be dealt with. w
are where opec comes in and start to address crisis or supply in particular or technically how the market trades itself around that band. there was never really a premise to where people were looking for that to exceed 27 or '8, it started getting into the 30 level because of fundamental breakdowns. and i think that's the reason why a lot of people are starting to look at the historics to see if we hit that moving average which is much lower. >> michael gur ka from spectrum asset management, thank you so much. and thank you, everyone, for tuning into the show. i'm kelly evans. ross westgate will be back here tomorrow morning. now it's time for "squawk box" in the u.s. we'll keep an eye on the markets. have a great day. >>> good morning. president obama and john boehner meet face-to-face on sunday. does it mean we're any closer to the solution to the fiscal cliff? >>> a news conference by chairman ben bernanke, set for wednesday.
is the supply side. at the moment, really we've got to see what opec wants to do. last year, the impact of the embargo wasn't -- was like a six week impact and it was forgotten about very quickly. and if you think about it, last year was a very, very steady year for oil prices. wti, as you said, is going to post the lowest rise in several years. in fact, i looked back in my forecast that i had for wti at the beginning of 2012. and it was $111 $a barrel. i moved it down to $110 in the middle of the year thinking it might get a little weaker and poked around and did absolutely nothing. >> i wonder whether the question is going to come back again into the oil markets given that we're looking at the israeli elections coming up in january. but back to the u.s. story, i find it hugely interesting, this notion of u.s. becoming energy independent on its own. do you really think it will happen? because i still talk to a couple of people in the oim and gas industry that say, you know what? it's a far cry from the reality out there. we're still going to see the middle east being the dominating oi
stimulus, inflation fears, oil up more not so much on fed but news out of opec that they are going to leave their production ceiling in place even though they are out producing what the ceiling is now. that has been a little bit bullish for prices in oil but nothing much coming out of the fed any time soon. they need a pizza or something. cheryl: you never know. we could get a couple surprises when it comes to the language. you never know how they will react. >> as a predictor, as a predictor they are not predicting anything. absolutely right. we will be here to go crazy when it does. cheryl: i want to bring in scott marden, united advisers chief market strategist and take this to the equities perspective, talking a lot of action at the cme today. when it comes equities you have the dow up five days, traders waiting to see what the fed will do. it is all about extending the bond buying program. if we get a number below -p$45 billion which seems to be the threshold expectation, what do you think the stock market might do? >> probably sell off. if you are an equity market lover you have to li

. >>> an oh beck minister, important events. opec ministers are in vienna. >> why vienna, by the way? >> i don't know why they originally set it there, but it seems like as good a place as any. have you been? >> i have not been. >> i don't think i've ever been to vienna. i always wondered about that. >> i mean, it's better than meeting in, i don't know, skokie, right? they're expected to retain its 28 million barrel a day output target. but the real drama is likely to be about leadership, the world's leading oil exporters are expected to argue about who should be opec's next secretary general and we have candidates from iran, iraq and saudi ara a arabia. they're all competing to replace the current leader, as you can see there. abdallah salem el badri, he's 72 years old and he's been there for years. i don't know where i've been for five years, but did you know -- >> i apologize in advance. i didn't. >> you could have said you did and we've been best friends, in fact. >> he's completely changed the entire operation. anyway, did a great job. >> in global market news this morning, stocks in asi
with the opec meeting. in addition to the fed that comes out tomorrow. the expectation is, that opec will leave their current quota unchanged, around 30 million barrels per day. the actual production, around 31 million barrels a day. there may not be any change to that. the key will be what happens in terms of the election of a new secretary-general and saudi arabia in the running for that as well. back to you. >> thanks very much, sharon epperson. i did want to look at shares of largest for-profit hospital in the country. a secondary offering this morning. hga finds itself in the of so many movements of the capital structure, reflective of the 250i78s. don't forget, they borrow at incredibly low rates not long ago, $1 billion, to pay a special dividend. you want to pay a special dividend prior to any tax increase on dividends as well. capital gains figuring into that debate, let's call it at this point that we've been detailing down in d.c. with our "mission critical" coverage. this morning, two of the owners of hca, it was a huge leverage back in '05, and '06, almost four times their money at
with the opec meeting next week as well. back to you. >> thank you very much sharon epperson. >> we did want to note for the viewers, a fairly large hedge fund that was in the news for not good reasons. diamondback capital management, a fund run by richard shimmal and larry kipanzi. richard schimel is the e ex-brother in law. lock capital management. two of those had already closed. level global has closed, in fact one of us founders, andrew chasen is on trial right now. diamondback went down to about $2 billion, but as of this morning, that is no long ter case. the hedge fund saying that given redemption requests came in about 26% of total asset ors $520 million. it would be left with $1.45 billion apparently that's just not enough to run the successful hedge fund. they did have 140 or so people working for them. not sure how much they have trended that. as of now, their seven-year track record at this point. but they have spending redemptions as you might expect. rushing all of the assets to fund holders. often times in these cases, you'll see people run out and look at 13, and say oh, wha
two years, around where it is today. that as opec announced today it will not raise the ceiling that it puts on oil exports of 30 million barrs a day and gas prices are still determined by global oil markets. i maintain that mark will see another economic renaissance and in part due to the domestic energy boom. just don't expect prices at the pump to fall anytime soon. if you're sick of slow internet connections at home, listen up. netflix, the on demand home movie provider depends on high speed connections for its customers to watch their movies. now netflix is starting a new series of monthly ratings of internet providers and the service -- the services with the fastest connection will edge google fiber rated number one by netflix. the speeds it says are 16% faster than number two verizon fios. comcast was number three on the list. here is the problem with google fiber. right now it is only available in kansas city, kansas. too bad, virtually nobody lives there. folks across the city in kansas city, missouri are out of luck for now. from the cnn money newsroom in new york, i'm
pointing going into 1q, the reason, it sort of rhymes in the spirit of the season. you have non-opec demand growing, global demand slowing, it's not snowing, and down is where we're going. the next big data point is probably the iaea report in february. and if that implicates more progress toward an iranian bomb, there's significant risk to look to the upside. in the meantime, you have a lot of other issues beyond the fiscal cliff. debt ceiling issues, if not resolved in the negotiation looming. and relatively long stocks here in the u.s. perhaps the most interesting part, becky, is to look at the convergence between light and heavy grades here in north america. we have a lot of light oil. and we're actually potentially short of heavy oil. so seeing convergence within that downward trend means there could be a bid for heavier. >> you would guess that would certainly hurt demand. >> sure. offsetting weakness in the dollar would lift the crude price based on historical trends, of course. yeah, it would be a significant blow, and when we're looking at 370 plus barrels of commercial inventories
's where crude oil breaks out to the upside. we start to get an upward trend. opec's 2013 target is around $100. i think we'll move up into the mid-90s and probably press through that $100. one of the burdens we have is we do have an abundance of supply in the u.s. the u.s. won't export any crude oil, but i think the possibility of us starting to consume more, would drive and help support those higher prices. >> when you put on those longs, i'm wondering, because this week is a holiday shortened week. congress is coming back on the 27th. is this a trade for 2013? >> yeah, it is more of a trade for 2013. i wiould start to look at fartherer out contracts, to like december 2013, and play the entire year's action, just by being long that one contract. but i would strongly wait until after the beginning of the year, because of the weaker volume, the lack of participants. and i think that the price is really going to shop around. >> nat gas prices taking a step back. what do you see in the immediate future and what is the main catalyst here? the weather seems to be sort of calm. >> yeah. that's
